The State of Winterwind Hinterland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Luke Bryan with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.201 billion Hinterlandians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Revelstoke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Winterwind Hinterlandian economy, worth 315 trillion US Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 143,246 US Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 631,860 per year while the poor average 20,350, a ratio of 31.0 to 1.

Lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, state-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Winterwind Hinterland. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winterwind Hinterland's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Winterwind Hinterland is ranked 23,378th in the world and 852nd in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring 72.44 on the Rand Index.
